It is so long as you haven't altered any of the kernel or base source

methods; freebsd-update when I'm using a GENERIC kernel with no changes
and the traditional method when the source has been altered, the kernel is
customized or the processor is not supported under freebsd-update.
Due to the recent security issue regarding openssl, I have to update a
server running 6_release. I was wondering if updating using binaries
using the freebsd-update utility is a viable alternative to recompiling
the world. What would you recommend?
